Our state gubernatorial debate is on. I was going to vote for the Republican--he did a great job as a local official here. But he's gotten so snide about throwing red meat to the base that despite my huge respect for the job he did here, I just can't do it. Oh--and he's doing a big 'drill baby drill' on potential offshore oil as resources belonging to the state. Um, no, actually, that's Federal revenue. Yes, there's a bill to share revenue, but trying to sell this as a great idea for the state is neither factually true nor environmentally sound. Dude. Whiskey tango foxtrot. What happened to you?

Plus as it turns out the Democrat is making a great case for investing in education. So he's making me feel a lot better about voting for him.

Sigh. I'm finding it very disillusioning that someone I would have enthusiastically supported has been coopted. It's like watching zombies eat your friend.
